MMAWeekly Radio is back with Bellator’s Brian Rogers as well as Chad George joining the show, plus debate about Rampage Jackson, UFC 146's all heavyweight main card and Nick Diaz.

Brian Rogers talks about his second stint as part of the Bellator middleweight tournament and how he goes from a day job as a teacher to fighting at night.

Chad George previews his fight this weekend with Shad Smith, while also discussing facing the first openly gay fighter in MMA, and the taboo that goes along with that.

Finally the debate opens up in the Sixth Round with a myriad of topics being discussed:

- Rampage Jackson will face Shogun Rua in his final fight in the UFC. Like it, love it or hate it?
- Do you think Rampage is really done with the UFC?
- All heavyweight card for UFC 146. Good idea?
- Alexander Gustafsson gets a new opponent in Thiago Silva. Better fight now?
- Nick Diaz has appealed his suspension by the Nevada Commission. Do you believe he’ll be exonerated of all charges?

This is MMAWeekly Radio for Wednesday, March 14
